3:05 pm
populated areas it's a really high risk for civilians to be injured and killed and that's what we saw in the pitofsky district that civilians were being killed by these kinds of rockets we were able to by looking at the creators looking at the direction from where the rockets were coming from looking at the. walls that were hit by these rockets so if it's if the rocket hits the western wall of a building it's coming from the west by doing that we were being were able to establish where the attacks were coming from in for attacks they were coming from areas under the control of the ukrainian army so in four of these attacks in the nets which killed sixteen civilians we believe that the ukrainian army was responsible for those attacks we are calling human rights watch is calling on both the ukrainian government and on separatist forces to immediately stop using grad rockets these kinds of indiscriminate weapons in populated areas and the ukrainian
3:06 pm
government should also investigate these cases where there are where there is reason to believe that ukrainian government forces were responsible for for the killing of civilians and both sides are denying the use of granite weapons or the use of at least the use of credit weapons in populated areas. that are evidence is quite clear and the ukrainian government should investigate and should immediately stop the use of these weapons in populated areas. also this week more than forty ukrainian troops abandon their positions and cross the border into russia some of them have reportedly asked for russian citizenship the soldiers say they are fed up with waging war against their own people well those with injuries are now being treated in russian hospitals. the ukrainian military has launched attacks on local militia near the malaysian plane crash site the fighting is preventing international teams from reaching the scene on the army is believed to be storming

3:08 pm
ukrainian military tanks going down the road and now we are in very close to secularist and torres and i can see you. know her memory for those heavy gunfire and explosions. and no lungs from where the ill fated m.h. seventeen flight departed was hit the hardest by they tried to me the planes carrying the bodies recovered from the scene have been arriving there throughout the week the first victim from the disaster has been identified on. it is a dutch citizen a team of two hundred forensic experts say it could take months for all the victims to be identified artie's peter all of our reports from a country in grief. oh i oh yes. i know the public so. the people of iraq to pay tribute to a family was restored was part of the very fabric of the community this family is
3:09 pm
so weird in and the whole community would need a whole city so everybody knows someone here has been coming you know for years so you're quite shocked restaurant owners before ingenue know died in the crash along with ms lois mother jones wait for only this son kevin wasn't on the plane now he's left pick up the pieces you can imagine how big a loss he's lost his parents his grandmother. who works in the restaurant also. hope he can manage to. go on like you spend state outside the asian gorge restaurant floral tributes by all of those who knew the family that concerned more with making the dead terrorist that needs a national plan that about investigating the tragedy the main thing is that which are the bodies home return sorry goodbye to them on the proper way ultimately what memorial service is like the one going on behind me show that even in its darkest
3:10 pm
hour the people of the netherlands are coming together to show that they stand as one peter all of a quality rotterdam. and australian couple who lost their daughter in the mh seven being crushed become the first family to visit the site of the drug they insisted on going to the crash scene the spy warnings of combat in new york area their twenty five year old daughter fatima was an early space engineering student and hunt hoped to become a pilot. the first thing then began really hard to see said how they should survive . it's he said how do we survive if we promise al it we have promised our daughter we will come here but it actually as soon as possible does the time factor yeah he should have come here the minute it happened the next day. the probe has yet to establish the cause all of the disaster but it's widely thought the m eight seventeen flight was shot down by a missile russia's defense ministry has presented its information on the crash
3:11 pm
publishing satellite images on radar tracking data from a let's take a look moscow says it's detected another aircraft in the same path as the malaysian plane which was bearing the parameters of a ukrainian military jet however kiev claims all of its planes were on the ground at the time plus subtle images show ukrainian rocket launching system in the area just days before the crash but on the same day as the tragedy it was apparently moved to an all known location russia's defense ministry is still waiting for comment on the information it has released we haven't received any from ukraine or from. it to really come into our own poor civil causes for the disaster with more still their comments based on what you will from social media now the u.s. says the malaysian airliner was done by a surface to air missile launched from territory controlled by local militia but
3:12 pm
it's also blaming russia for aiding kiev forces washington has yet to reveal the evidence it claims it hugs and has been coming under increasing pressure from some media over its munting accusations towards moscow. i would like to know what you're basing this new evidence that the russians intend to send any heavier equipment not based on some intelligence information i can't get into the sources and methods behind it but i was able to be able to tell you that is there a youtube video or something that you can point us to that i mean you know engines and i'm just wondering if you what what what it is i just said i wasn't going to give you the underlying source for a movie did you like i don't want money working its magic you're sure i don't give you more information just say no i think you're making the source not actually ask you a question here i can't give you the source and i think would you prefer i not give you the information theory and i think that it would be best for all concerned i hear any other questions you know you make an allegation like that you're able to
3:13 pm
back it up with something more than just because i say so. washington's accusations were picked up by many news outlets laying the blame for the crash directly at the russian president's door ortiz going to church account has been monitoring the media storm. the media coverage in the west has been largely slanted against russia public opinion of course response to that kind of coverage of accent i meant is that russia is probably involved and if involved they're probably going to cover it up that's where the public sentiment is in the c.n.n. poll the american people got it right in terms of who's to blame here folks fifty one percent said russia's and directly involved but only the stakes are high whoever shoulders the blame for this atrocity is going to be the target of global anger and right now it looks like it's russia's fault because. it's russia's fault . it's quite clearly the latest twist in this propaganda war the russians through their ambassador here in kuala lumpur presenting their version of events to the
3:14 pm
malaysian media there's also been attempts to discredit russian sources of information c.n.n. put out a breakdown of what it called russia's propaganda the first item on the list is this it says the russian take passengers were already dead when put aboard the m h seventeen but when you follow the link on this page it has an article in russian which reviews all the apparently put on quote fake fur gins and conspiracy theories that are out there that's what the article says specifically about this theory that the bodies were dead before the crash it says literally then there is information which is simply impossible to believe c n n presents it and calls it the russian take it is not the russian take in the same breakdown right after this dead bodies theory c.n.n. puts russian defense officials showing evidence that ukraine had the capability to shoot down the plane moscow is now saying ukraine did it showing evidence that it had the capability to do it contrary to what kiev is now say that claim is brushed
3:15 pm
off as propaganda information is now politically charged on all airwaves it seems many journalists have already handed down their verdict in washington i'm going to check on r t. the us has released images it's a box claims the russian military has been firing rockets at ukrainian territory these pictures courtesy of the state department claim to show the impact of multiple rocket launchers fired over the border from russia and aimed at ukrainian military units the images being picked up by many social and major media outlets are no u.s. official has commented on the issue so far on the exact source of the data is also not clear. coming up here in r t international israel and hamas trade cease fires the palestinian militant groups a.z. it's ready for another day long humanitarian truce reports stated still poised to use rockets israel's ready restarted its bombardments after the previous agreement
3:16 pm
was reached i'll be bringing you the full story after a short break. there's a media lead also we leave that maybe. by the same motion security for your party visible. for shoes that no one is asking with the guests that you deserve answers from it's all on politicking only on our t.v. . government system is to help poor people who are women but they're going to do to change their life and nobody's trying to make money out of them those who want to make money out of them by misusing. the time the whole thing and to loan sharking deduction and we had opal still show.
3:17 pm
the watching the weekly welcome truce efforts between hamas and israel seem to be falling apart with both sides unable to reach an agreement on continuing to trade accusations in the near future want to marry can child the israeli prime minister accused palestinians of trying to influence global opinion with images of piled up slain civilians meanwhile the leader of hamas is forming a delegation to travel to cairo for talks with israel on the ceasefire the previous u.n. brokered humanitarian truce ended when a barrage of rockets were fired into israeli territory and israel resumed its
3:18 pm
offensive the group event said no humanitarian truce would be followed without is really timed with drawing an ambulance is being able to freely move around in gaza paula so you're has more from jerusalem. there were rockets fired from gaza at israel in the early hours of sunday morning several were intercepted over the say into the country and they have been sirens sounding both in the same to and in the south of israel there was also an israeli soldier that was killed by a mortar shell not far from the israel gaza border that the israeli military fatalities to some forty three now one of this follows a cease fire that was observed on saturday by both sides that ceasefire was a u.n. brokered humanitarian truce and it enabled aid workers to bring much needed emergency supplies into the gaza strip as you know hospitals there for example has practically run out of medicine it was also a chance for people inside gaza to return to their homes to try and salvage what
3:19 pm
little they could to bury the dead and also to recover bodies we haven't yet had any official reaction from israel as to this latest cease fire put forward by how much so we are waiting to hear what the israelis have to say but what they have said is that they believe that the number of rockets that hamas and islamic jihad have at their disposal. the creased matter because of this his lady operation and they also believe that these rain will be forced to remain inside the gaza strip because they say militants in gaza will try to hold on to the remaining awesome and extend the fighting in the gaza strip for quite some time so it certainly doesn't look as if the feeling on the ground is if we're going to see a cessation of hostilities anytime soon our correspondent sent as a video taken from the heart of the worst hit areas in the strip it does contain some graphic images. of what we're doing now. we're going to move.
3:20 pm
on with their own. words of a truce a part of the show among the ruins of destroyed residential buildings he's thought to be the target of those really government gunfire appears to be searching for cover when a bullet hits him only stretched out on the ground we talked to an eyewitness. with respect to the death all together there with shots fired the first one missed but. three were aimed for him the second one was. which caused him to fall down on the ground and the third one was i guess for them to make sure that they had got to him basically he was as far as we are aware he was looking for his family he was frantic he was he was leading the way he was on the floor and he knew the area we wanted to do was find. in his day there was supposed to be a cease fire as well however as we set into the region there was bombing nearby
3:21 pm
there was shelling nearby and snipers shooting at. israel says incessant rocket fire from gaza during the truce caused it to relaunch its offensive my colleague paul scott talked to paul pierce and a spokesman for the israeli foreign ministry he explained why his country is not backing down they say that all timothy's should be investigated and i agree and i'll tell you what we're going to discover we're going to discover that israel has taken unprecedented steps in a very difficult circumstance to minimize and to avoid civilian casualties and we're going to discover that hamas evil machine with a killer strategy. is perpetrating war crime of the war crime of the war crime and that's what we're going to discover you say that israel is doing all it can to minimize civilian casualties are you doing enough or boys killed on a beach we're hearing about civilians being killed every single day we said
3:22 pm
repetitively we said it also quietly through diplomatic channels quiet will be all said with quiet calm will be responded to with call this message was rejected out of hand they've been three cease fire proposals one by the egyptians one by the united nations one by the international committee for the red cross all three we accepted unconditionally we implemented them all three of which with the with the glib laws they couldn't care less attitude come us rejected and violated so i agree with you the this is a real tragedy the responsibility for which lies directly at the doorstep of hamas missing in action held at gunpoint and deported it all happened this week to u.k. journalist n r t contributor graham phillips he was detained in ukraine by security forces held in captivity for three days and then kicked out unpowered from the country for three years he told us what else he had to go through during his detention. they were sending messages from my phone that message that you go r.t.
3:23 pm
saying all these fine i didn't i didn't send that message they were going through my messages asking me about every single message who sent this to you who is this person how do you know this person was put in a room next to an artillery position that they were firing heavily from that was being fired on i was kept in a cell or was detained along with another journalist the deal he was beaten in front of me i saw soldiers you know kick him in the face and then a soldier said if you can confirm my details and he couldn't guarantee that i was going to live i was blindfolded kept in a cell without water or toilet facilities and then we were separated i was interrogated i was interrogated all day i was called a terrorist and i was told i had a russian passport i was a russian spy they were telling me all day that i had entered ukraine through ukraine and entered it through russia it's all completely completely false they were accusing me of working for terrorists all of these accusations and interrogations and then they took my computer they took my things and i've just go
